Jane Austen’s six complete novels and her juvenilia are examined in the context of civil society and gender. Steiner’s study uses a variety of contexts to appraise Austen’s work: Scottish Enlightenment theories of societal development, early-Romantic discourses on gender roles, modern sociological theories on the civilizing process.

About the Author:

Enit Karafili Steiner was educated at the University of Zurich and University of California, Los Angeles. Her monograph Jane Austen's Civilized Women: Morality, Gender and the Civilizing Process was published by Pickering and Chatto in 2012. She is also editor of Frances Brooke's The History of Lady Julia Mandeville (Pickering and Chatto, 2013) and a collection of essays Called to Civil Existence: Dialogues on Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, published in 2014 by Rodopi Press. She is a lecturer at the University of Lausanne.

Review:


"Steiner's text is unique both for its broad-ranging philosophical treatment of Austen's work, and for the sustained feminist reading that carefully links Austen's civilising process to the concerns of contemporary readers."

Wendy O'Brien, Cercles 2013
"Steiner has written a complex but rewarding study of Austen's novels, appraising the role of society, gender, and feminist interpersonal relations. [This is] an informative addition to the Austen library."

Paul J. deGategno, JASNA News, No. 16, 2013


"This ambitious, meticulously researched and wide-ranging study is likely to be of most use to critically engaged scholars of Austen ... [it] provides some genuinely new close readings, and insightful comments on much-read and discussed novels."
 
Gillian Dow, The BARS Review, No.44, 2014
"This project is novel in method as well as scope. Austen criticism of recent decades has registered nearly every development in literary studies generally, but it tends to wear its theoretical influences so lightly that unalerted readers could miss them altogether ... This study marches audaciously to the beat of an unfamiliar drum."

Sarah Raff, Interactive Journal for Women in the Arts, 1640-1830, March 2014
